Blog : Big Brothers Big Sisters Match of the Month

By Ali | Apr 21, 2014 | in

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a Green Alliance business partner focused on the needs and success of the children in the Greater Seacoast community. The BBBS mission is to provide children in the program a big brother or sister who becomes their life long mentor and friend.

Each month, BBBS highlights a child in need on their waiting list. This month is dedicated to Ryan who is currently living in Newmarket. Ryan is a typical eight year old who enjoys animals, nature, gardening, jump roping, playing soccer, reading and riding his bike. He is an active, energetic, smart and creative individual who is in need of a Big. Ryan is seeking a Big brother to play basketball with and teach him everything an older sibling would normally do about school and growing up.

For the majority of Ryan’s life he lacked an older male figure to look up to, his father was in the military until two years ago and didn’t make an effort to strengthen their relationship once he was back home. Currently, Ryan sees his dad once a week. Having a Big sibling will give Ryan something to look forward to throughout the month.

Ryan is just one of 49 children currently on the waiting list looking for a Big Brother or a Big Sister. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about BBBS or becoming a Big please visit the BBBS website by clicking here or call the Portsmouth office at (603) 430-1140.
